Panaji: Goa Police has called for reports of
gang rivalry cases in the last five years in the state to
probe the recent assault on three persons including a gangster
at the Miramar beach here.

Superintendent of Police Arvind Gawas said the attack,
which took place last Friday, would be probed from all
possible angles considering the gang fights that have happened
during the last five years.

Five gangsters have been arrested for assaulting Salvador
Fernandes, a history-sheeter and two others including an
innocent girl on the beach.

The assailants identified as Yatin Tagade (21), Ashraf
Shaikh (18), Sandeep Shinde (23), Krishna Naik (21) and Godvin
Miskita (18), all from St Cruz were arrested after a massive
manhunt at Amboli in Maharashtra.

Police have called for all the reports of gang fights
from across all the police stations of the state.

Although initial investigations have pointed out that the
attack was to avenge a similar assault, police officials
stated that they are diagnosing every minute detail.

"We don`t want such incidents to happen on the streets of
the state. We want to end it here," Gawas said.

Goa has witnessed several gang rivalries in the past
including a brutal attack on the gangster outside District and
Sessions Court recently.
